Housing for the increasing population is the main causes of the decline of these fruits

The native fruit varieties are disappearing fast in Narsingdi due to the adverse impact of climate change, use of agro-chemical in the ground and want of planning on production and marketing of native fruits.

Once there were various native fruits available in the village like Gab, Deowa, Kathbal, Sufada, Kaow, Hog-plam, Dalim, Black-bery Rose-bery, Olive, Tamarind, star-apple, Casterd-apple Chalta, Shorifa, Kamranga etc. But it is now on the decline because there is no planning on the production and marketing of these varieties of fruit.

Housing for the increasing population is the main causes of the decline of these fruits. Besides, the village people now planting wood sapling instead of native fruits in their garden for more profit.

Abdul Ali, a 65 years old man of village Adiabad under Raipura upazila said, housing for the increasing population is the main reason behind the decline of native fruit varieties.

He said he was the only son of his father and his father had a 60 decimal house with a building on five decimals and the rest of the land was the various native fruits garden. But at present (after 50 years) the picture of the house completely changed as he divided his house among the five sons for their dwelling-house cutting all the native fruit trees

Deputy Director, Department of Agriculture Extension (DAE), Shovan Kumar Dhar said due to climate change, air pollution, and indiscriminately use of agri-chemical and pesticides in the garden the native fruit varieties are disappearing in our country.

He said the DAE encouraging the village people for planting more native fruit varieties tree and also locally being arranged exhibition on the native fruit varieties for increasing the farming of the varieties.
